Regional Influence: Sprat


The United States of Zess is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 203 million Zessians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 35.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Zessian economy, worth 7.84 trillion exchange tickets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,606 exchange tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown. Zess's national animal is the nekomimi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zess is ranked 77,317th in the world and 2,824th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,534.51 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
